Paco Jemez , the man who converted Super Eagles latest invitee Uche Agbo to a central defender from his midfield role has been fired by the club, owing to a poor start to the season.

Paco, converted Agbo who has been a midfielder for Granada the past three seasons to a central defender during pre season, and the ex Nigeria junior international kept his place when the season got underway in Spain.

A poor run of just two draws from their first six games of the season have left them in 19th position on the log and, to an extent early candidates for relegation.

Ironically, Agbo who was recently called up as a replacement for injured regular Nigeria national team defender Leon Balogun is part of a defence line that has conceded the most goals (15) in the six weeks old La-Liga.

Agbo is currently on loan to the La-Liga side from English side Watford, where it is expected that he will return back to the side after the expiration of his loan deal.
